Every year India observes National Girl Child Day on January 24. In 2008, the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India, decided to celebrate this day to offer support and opportunities to the girl child in India. On January 24, for the first time, the elected Prime Minister of the country was a woman. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also started the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign in 2015 on this day. India's female population has outnumbered male population as per 5th National Family Health Survey Report 2019-21 (NFHSR-5). India now has 1,020 females per 1,000 males as per NFHSR-5.
But, it is often seen that women take lightly of their health. As per statistics, about 67 per cent of the women do not talk about their health problems openly. Whereas 59 per cent of the women in the age group of 22 to 55 years have to leave their jobs due to health issues. About 40 per cent of the women are taking medicine for some sort of lifestyle-related diseases.
Given these numbers, it is necessary for women to take care of everyone as well as take care of themselves. Getting regular health check-ups, eating on time, taking good diet and practising yoga are some of the ways through which lifestyle can see major improvement. Know from Swami Ramdev which yogasanas should be done by women to keep themselves fit.
